    Angry [12.04] Software Center does not detect DSL connection via pppoeconf

    I have a dsl connection and I have to connect to it via pppoeconf. So my network-manger does not manage my internet.

    The problem is that when I try to use the software center, it does not detect the internet connection. So the install button is disabled. It also says "Connect to the internet to read more reviews." But it loads reviews just below the message. I can also use synaptic and GDebi without any problems. But I can't find any solution for my software center.

    You should be able to connect via the network-manager in "DSL". For this, open the file
    Code:
    gksu gedit /etc/network/interfaces
    and remove anything except
    Code:
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback
    Reboot and connect via NM.

    This is because of the "pppoeconf" entries in the "interfaces" file. Change "false" to "true" in the /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf. Then it should work
